Glass Half Full Theatre creates puppetry and physical theatre of objects and ideas, devising visually- driven narratives inspired by issues that concern humans across the globe. Our goal is to share stories that are generous, not only in their core content and narratives, but in their deeper invitations: to imagine, to participate, to question, and to strive for meaning. The company was formed in France in 2004 by graduates from the Ecole Jacques Lecoq, and was based in Paris and Baltimore before settling in Austin in 2010. Austin productions include FupDuck, The Orchid Flotilla, and Once There Were Six Seasons. Glass Half Full Theatre has received B. Iden Payne awards for Outstanding Direction and Original Script, is a sponsored project of the Austin Creative Alliance, and is funded in part by the City of Austin & the Jim Henson Foundation. www.glasshalffulltheatre.com
Trouble Puppet Theater Company, recipient of such B. Iden Payne Awards as Outstanding Director of a Drama, Best Production of a Drama, Outstanding Original Script, and Outstanding Puppetry, is dedicated to the creation of exceptional works of puppet theater for grownups. Trouble Puppet was created in 2004 by Artistic Director Connor Hopkins and has in recent years been making trouble in shows such as Frankenstein: The Trouble Puppet Show, The Jungle, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, and The Cruel Circus. Trouble Puppet is a sponsored project of Salvage Vanguard Theater and is supported in part by the city of Austin, the Jim Henson Foundation, and individual donors.
